That doesn’t help

31 December 2022

There are people who spend the whole of their life working away to find out what’s on the sun, the moon or some such, but that’s of no benefit to the soul. But if we made an effort to see what’s in the human heart, then we’d see the kingdom of heaven in the soul of the saints and darkness and punishment in that of sinners. And it’s important to know this, because we’ll spend eternity in either the kingdom or in hell.
